where is the pressure on this company to deliver something to the stock hodlers??? M&A is good stuff but when does the growth pay off. I've mistakenly held this company for years with a gain equivalent of a money market account. How many presidents and vPs does it take to screw in a light bulb?? Join me now. "Dividend!", "Dividend!","Dividend!","Dividend!","Dividend!","Dividend!".
I agree 100% with the need for a dividend on CSC shares. Something is very wrong at CSC. Where are the billions of $'s earned over the years? I would like to see a proposal at the annual meeting that would limit total management cash bonuses to say a maximum of 5% of the total dividends payed to the common shareholders in any given year. If the company needs to hold onto the cash then lets hold on to the cash. Otherwise, it belongs to the shareholders, not the management!
The profits not paid in dividends is re-invested in the business hence the growth. BTW this is after salaries and bonuses so your comments are meaningless. In addition it has always been CSC policy not to pay dividends and this is a public policy, so if you bought Stock expecting dividends then you are more stupid than you sound.
